11:27 pm
games in. 24 is a guy who has racked up 47,000 minutes and coming off six straight nba finals. he is going to rest him, but why does it matter if it is three weeks into the season? >> it matters to the people who spend, you know, they bring a family of four to the game and it costs them $500, $600. it matters deeply to them. you should have seen the faces of those kids when they found ou out lebron james wasn't playing. i understand he has to get his rest when he has to take a rest. what i take issue is -- issue with is it is 11 games into the season. not the 71st and not the 56th, the 11th. adam silver made the point, i think today, that if guys like lebron are going to sit out games like this or steph curry or whomever it may be, do it at home. those folks have a chance to

if it is a nonconference game you can see these great players just once in the course of the season. >> you hit upon it so i will get to this. i did something at 6:00 on this. to me if lebron will show loyalty if that's the right word, gut if he will consider a fan base to me i would rather have him sit on the road. he owe itself to the people of cleveland. they are financially invested in his salary. so i don't want him to sit at home. do i feel bad for pacer fans? ofrs brokers whose prices plummet? i don't. i don't think he owes them anything. >> i don't think he owes them either. >> tony: hue jackson already lost to his good friend and now mike tomlin is on deck. >> i am compete -- competing a man i rub elbows with so i want to be one up and not two down.
